I originally went to Hobby Lobby in an effort to get scrapbook starting material to work with my daughter (10 years old) on starting a scrapbook of her swim team participation. I decided to purchase some materials so that I could begin a general family scrapbook at the same time (along side her as a way to spend time with her).
So, a few hundred dollars later, I think I got many of the basics covered and gaver her her stuff at Christmas.
My ex did some scrapbooking, so I'm familiar with some of the concepts.
I've stared to go through the class and some of the threads here, but have some questions:
1. What's the best way to include things like ribbons and other physical mementos (other than the pictures)? Should we attach those to the page itself in the same manner as the pictures and embellishments or should there be a separate pocket of sorts to keep those items?
2. I don't get the punches. I've read about it, but I'm sure I'm understanding how it's used and what is required?
3. I'm also confused by the fonts/journaling. My handwriting is terrible. Do I print from my computer with standard inkjet and then crop the result to the page or are there separate writing machines/devices used to get better quality and longer lasting result than inkjet?
Thanks - I'll continue to read and will probably have some "ah ha" moments, but just am not quite figuring out the above questions yet.
